Can I include that as is? Ah, yes, copyright is in the script.
To be clear: I am little bit fed up at network handling in
debian, so I mostly do this:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual
        pre-up ip link set up dev eth0

# Use only link-local
iface vlan1 inet manual
        pre-up ip link add link eth0 name vlan1 type vlan id 1
        pre-up sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.vlan1.accept_ra=0
        pre-up ip link set up dev vlan1
        down ip link del vlan1

# To prepare for macvlan usage in lxc:
iface vlan51 inet manual
        pre-up ip link add link eth0 name ${IFACE} type vlan id 51
        pre-up sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.${IFACE}.disable_ipv6=1
        pre-up ip link set arp off dev ${IFACE}
        up ip link set up dev ${IFACE}

I probably should turn of arp and ipv6 too on eth0 before upping

Anyway: it might be best if I scrap the old vlan package and
install some replacement scripts, making it a debian native
And then find a debian maintainer who is willing to upload.
